Whenever anyone mentions long drives in the USA, the Historic Route 66 invariably springs to mind. Top of most drivers’ bucket list, the ¨Mother Road¨ runs 3,940km (2,448 mi..) from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica on California’s glorious Pacific coast, passing through five other states en route: Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico. The Pacific Coast Highway picks up where the Route 66 leaves off, taking travellers to San Francisco (including the thrill of crossing the amazing Golden Gate Bridge) continuing all the way north to Seattle. A lesser-known but also enthralling U.S. road trip is a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway which traverses the states of Virginia and North Carolina to showcase a completely different part of the United States. And of course for fall colours, nothing beats a driving itinerary through the six states of New England, as well as New York State.
